Yesterday (Monday 8th) a small camp was set-up across a public footpath (in trebanos, wales) when construction workers tried to resume work on the gas pipe line. People are also occupying the pipe, and all work has been stopped. The camp cannot be removed as it has been set-up on a public footpath. We need people URGENTLY, to support the small camp, do direct actions on other consturction work, occupy pipes, and to be part of future plans to fight the pipe across wales.
URGENT Support is requested from Dine Elders and Youth!
Sithe Global & DPA are proposing to build the Desert Rock power plant, a 1,500 MW Coal Fired plant in the Four Corners area on the Navajo Reservation. This is an area already polluted by 2 other major coal power plants. Local Navajo residence and community members oppose this project for many harmful reasons!! This Desert Rock power plant is still in the environmental review process and has NOT yet been permitted.
The basic principle of a lock-on is to lock yourself onto something so that you cannot be easily physically removed. That something can be another person or something fixed. The best way is with a climbing carabina and a chain or rope around your wrist. The important thing is to make it very difficult for the police or whoever to cut your lock-on off. Thats where the fun part comes in, covering that lock-on to make it very difficult to get to, thus delaying the authorities and making your blockade as successful as possible. They will possibly have access to specialist equipment.
The Earth First Gathering 2007 is well into the planning stage.

Ten reasons to join the protest at Milford Haven LNG
1. The supposed justification for this facility is that we need a secure source of energy when we run out of our own. When is this projected need going to exist? We have just received a pipeline from the huge stocks of Norway. We have so much gas we havenâ€™t got room to store it.
Hi folks,latest update from radford mill farm is that despite repeated attempts at negotiation with Richard Fox, the landlord, we have been forced by his behaviour to occupy the farm on a squatting basis. We were trying to negotiate a new wave of help for the place and save it as an organic farm and eco project.
